  • Sooty or Short-tailed Shearwater, Malaysia

    I'd be very interested to read the thoughts of anyone familiar with both species on the bird in this post. Sooty would be a first for Malaysia. Mind you, Short-tailed was only confirmed to occur last year.

    Thanks

    Hi Dave, I'm less convinced it's a Sooty Shearwater. The underwing pattern, pale chin, a slender bill (to my eye) favors Short-tailed to me.

      Thanks Andy

      I tend to agree with you!
